Alcohol Event Registration form Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a Social Host?
All staff and faculty who are on the exempt payroll are eligible to become Social Hosts. You must complete the Social Host Training session, offered monthly through University Police and Student Affairs, to become a Social Host. Please visit Social Host Training on the University Police website to register for a training.
Is security required for my event?
Security is required to be present when any students under the legal drinking age are expected or permitted to attend or when more than one hundred (100) guests are expected to attend.
Security is also required for certain locations in order to make the location private or semi-private to ensure guest safety. Privacy is determined by the ability to control access to the area of the social activity and limit attendance to invited guests only.
How do I request security for my event?
Why do I receive the following error message when I enter my Social Host's Andrew ID? “A valid and authorized Primary Social Host's Andrew ID is required.”
A "Social Host" is a dean, department head, faculty member or staff member who is on the exempt payroll and takes personal responsibility for ensuring that alcoholic beverages are served only to those persons who are of legal age. Such responsibility may be assumed only after completing the Social Host Responsibility session offered through University Police.
If you believe that you received this message in error, please email email@example.com with the name and Andrew ID of the social host, along with the date they attended the Social Host Responsibility session.
